Italian luxury yacht manufacturer Riva, the maker of the magnificent Aquarama, have teamed up with Fiat for a special and limited version of the 500. Simply called the Fiat 500 Riva, the car comes with many yacht-inspired visual features and is garnished with premium materials.
Fiat 500 has teamed up with so many different Italian brands, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if someday they come up with a 500 De’Longhi edition with a built-in dishwasher. At any rate, Fiat 500 Riva is one of the finer special editions and it boasts some really exquisite details.
Available as hatchback or convertible, Fiat 500 Riva edition comes with a “Sera Blue” straight out of Riva’s catalog and the color of choice for the Aquariva Super, successor to the legendary Aquarama. There is also chrome mirror caps, double aquamarine line belt line, 16-inch 20-spoke alloy wheels, and wooden insert on the side moulding. What’s more, the convertible version comes with a bespoke light blue soft top while the coupe gets a panoramic sunroof.
As for the interior, the main highlights include hand-painted mahogany dashboard with maple inlay work which apparently has been really hard to make, mahogany door sills and gear knob, ivory leather upholstery by Poltrona Frau, Sera Blue stitching, and boot mat with Riva wooden insert. In terms of equipment you get a 7” HD Uconnect LIVE infotainment system, automatic climate control, front fog lights, rear parking sensors, LED DRLs and a host of safety features including seven airbags, ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ASR (Anti Slip Regulation) Hill Holder and HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assistance).
With prices starting from £11,050 in the UK, Fiat 500 Riva can be ordered with 1.2 69hp, TwinAir 85hp and TwinAir 105hp engine options.
